Houthi forces and their army allies in Yemen seized the capital of a large desert province on the border with Saudi Arabia Sunday, residents said, an important victory for the group ahead of peace talks in Geneva Monday.Since forming an alliance with Yemen's still powerful former President Ali Abdullah Saleh and his loyalists in the army, the Houthis have taken over the capital Sanaa and swooped into several central provinces.In the southern province of Dhalea near Aden, local militiamen said they were pushing Houthi forces back after ejecting them from the regional capital last month.
